Trees - Norra Lunsen

NIKON D80, 18.0 mm, f/4.0, 1/250 sec, ISO 100 AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED CC-BY-NC-ND-4.0

Norra Lunsen1 is a nature reserve right next to the Swedish city, Uppsala. A while ago they decided to restore the original, marsh state of the area. You mostly walk on wooden planks and the green "meadow" below you is not grass; it's pitch black water covered in duckweed. The creaking of the half-dead trees, the black water and the silence are all adding up to a pretty much haunted feeling. If you happen to be close to it, visit it.
